#BuyNigerian or Nah?

I love the internet and social media, it’s such an amazing place which provides so much opportunity for people – especially small business owners.

There are so many online stores which exist just on Instagram, no website or all those extra stuff (probably coming later on). 

I like this, but then there are some repeated occurrences which annoy me to no end. Keep in mind that when I say online store, I don’t mean stores like the really popular ones. I’m talking the smaller yet upcoming ones which may not necessarily be an ‘official’ brand, but a side hustle for the owners. Here are three most prominent ones.

Review: Anike Herbal Solutions

I’d first stumbled across this page via the page of its owner, Anike Oladimeji (@anikethebosschick). I liked the concept, and was a bit skeptical at first. One thing that puts me off some business pages is the way their Instagram layout looks. If it’s tacky and thrown together anyhow, littered with Whats App screenshots and the occasional photos, I am put off.

However, I decided to stay with the page and look past the flaws. I looked at the price list of the products, and told myself that I would definitely purchase something in 2017. I read the Whats App screenshots, saw photos from happy customers and I was sold.
